This is Episode 101 of Modern Technology Knows Your Name, a podcast about
self-chosen names. In this program our own Rob Vincent, a.k.a. Rob T
Firefly, takes a deep dive into why some folks decide to use a new name,
how they choose what to call themselves, and what being known as that
name means to them.
Usernames, handles, nicknames, professional names, formally-changed
names that alter our government-issued legal documents or just casually
self-applied names, religious names, screennames, assumed names, names
based on one’s own conscious decisions, names that take effort to
apply. These are some examples of names we choose for ourselves, and Modern Technology Knows Your Name aims to share the stories behind them.
Have you chosen a name for yourself different from the one you were
given as a baby? We would love to share your story about how and why you
chose your name on this program! Get in touch.
We welcome written stories to be read on the show, self-recorded audio
submissions, or we can try to arrange an audio interview at a
convenient time. No naming story is too short or too long.
